Abstract

Soft tissue grafts are commonly used to restore and/or improve mucogingival deformities and conditions around teeth or on edentulous ridges. This include vertical and/or horizontal ridge deficiency, lack of gingiva/keratinized tissue, decreased vestibular depth and abnormal color. The present article describes and illustrates different procedures using autologous soft tissue grafts including masticatory mucosal free graft, masticatory mucosal pedicle graft, subepithelial free connective tissue graft, and subepithelial dermal graft. The functional and esthetic advantages and limitations of each graft for each condition are discussed.
